    Smile DNS is not propagating afer 4 days of changing it


    I made changes to the dns of this domain name scienceofmind.com(registered with Networksolutions) to point to my account csl.org on hostgator servers. I have the scienceofmind.com domain name setup in this account. The DNS changes were made last saturday.Since then, I have seen the scienceofmind.com website live on hostgator servers, but not consistently. Propagation is not completing or is unusually slow, most of the time the site is not accessible.
    Is there anything I can do to know if there are problems, and or to speed up the process?
    These were the NS I Used:

    ns1.csl.org (198.154.207.86)
    ns2.csl.org (198.154.207.87)

    There are no such domains ns1.csl.org and ns2.csl.org. They, themselves, need their own DNS records registered with csl.org's nameservers.

    If I query 198.154.207.86/7 directly for the DNS records for scienceofmind.com, I get proper information so that part is fine.

    Talk to the person who manages the csl.org domain, explain your situation, tell them what I said about needing DNS records for ns1.csl.org and ns2.csl.org, and they can take care of it for you.

    You can even get your own customized nameservers by your domain registrar and point server IP to them.
